Congratulations to Judge Marullo on his re-election, and to Judge-Elect Williams on his win in the November 4 election. While the courts cleared the way for Judge Marullo to run for re-election despite the constitution’s mandatory judicial retirement age, whether he can actually take office is an open question. Judge-Elect Williams, meanwhile, will take over the Section G docket in January, and our court watchers are looking forward to getting to know him.
Finally, how do you almost lose a race in which you are unopposed? Ask Judge White, apparently, as she barely won a majority of the votes in a race in which her competitor, prosecutor Kevin Guillory, never campaigned and withdrew weeks ago. Congratulations?
